Extroverted Thinking (Te): Leia never misses an opportunity to take charge of any situation; she even takes command of a rescue mission when she is the one being rescued! She is a no-nonsense organizer who is completely comfortable commanding soldiers on the front lines of a war. Leia speaks and acts in a direct fashion; she doesn’t mince her words when she has an opinion, and her first instinct on seeing stormtroopers enter her room is to shoot at them. She is even direct when she is being stealthy; when disguising herself to sneak into Jabba’s palace and demanding a high price for delivering Chewbacca to him, she convinces Jabba to accept it by threatening his life.
Introverted Sensing (Si): Leia serves the Rebel Alliance out of a sense of duty to the cause. Her adoptive father was an early opponent of Palpatine during his rise to power, and Leia is continuing his work in her dedication to overthrowing the Empire. This work is mainly restorative in nature; Leia is striving to reinstate the Galactic Republic which preceded the Empire. Leia is all about rules and discipline, and she has trouble accepting the free-form and often subversive way that Han does things.
Extroverted Intuition (Ne): While Han and Luke were trying to shoot their way through a squad of stormtroopers to get out of the Death Star detention block, Leia comes up with an alternative escape route: through the garbage chute. When they all escape from the Death Star, she correctly surmises that their escape was too easy, and that they were being tracked to their destination. Even when she can’t put her finger on the problem, Leia is aware of when something is wrong with her situation (e.g. during her stay in Cloud City).
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Even though her feelings are the motivation for her actions, Leia can separate them from the job she has to do. Even when under torture, she does not give away the location of the rebel base, and she lies about the location when her home planet is threatened. Leia always tries to keep her emotions under wraps; it takes a great deal of time, complete with kicking and screaming, before she admits that she has feelings for Han.
